Anyone else think it would be awesome to have emotes that repeat as long as you hold the emote button?
Imagine a Warlord bashing his shield rythmically over and over again or a Lawbringer bashing his poleaxe on the ground,
Would be epic!
Any chance of this in the future?

Lol, I can just see a Shugoki sitting cross legged, pouting away as he holds one of the points in Dominion, getting up only to give out free hugs.
Would be glorious.

I think this sounds like a really good idea.

I think this sounds like a really good idea.

Yeah there has been a few times I've been locked in a stand off with people sitting just beyond a captured point with neither of us ready to commit and I just felt the need to start bashing my shield or chest or stamping my Trident/Kanabo prepping for the coming fight.

I think it would be really cool.

I really like the others ideas above too of endlessly shovelling like some irritated groundskeeper that refuses to stop working or just sitting around the place pouting,
Would be hilarious if a Shinobi and Shugoki just sat somewhere together like they're meditating or something.

I can pass along the suggestion! But , while some emotes look good being spammed, it's not the case with all of them. We'd probably have to pick at which point the emote animation is put on hold/repeat when you hold the button too.

Also, I think this could also introduce a potential obstacle to the afk-detection system so we'd have to think about how to keep that from possibly being abused if we were to make something like this happen. Just my thoughts!

How about not doing this? Let's not turn it into some Disney, "let's play emote" game.

To be honest I didnt even think of the AFK system, would make it really hard to implement, perhaps best not to bother the team with it, AFK is working pretty well at present and I wouldnt want to see it busted.

There is somehing you could do though that would be great,
Sometimes the Gladiator bashes their chest with their shield as you walk and it looks amazing and very intimidating and I would love for a combat emote like that,
Can you ask the team real nice for me if theres any chance of that becoming an official emote!

This is glorious,
The Samurai may not be in the best position balance wise at the moment but their emote game never fails to impress😂

Even if it's not in their plans, I'll bring it up as a suggestion!

this sounds good, but I'm still waiting on those team emotes. Wouldn't mind head-butting a fellow HL after a successful match
